    Post your Mojo pics here!!!

    Well basically I am still not rich enough to get a Mojo carbon yet. Anyway please post your Mojo carbon pics here. Anyone who owns or just owned their Mojo should post a pic of their bike here for easier reference for other users or future Mojo owners

    *I hope this will be the official post your Mojo pic thread and if any mod were to make this into a sticky is greatly appreciated

    Well, I prefer to have Ibis Mojo pics posted here also, its more fun to continously seeing other peoples mojo without having to click the back icon (no offence). Thats a sweet ride noshortcuts. How much did she weight? You only need a carbon seatpost to make your bike a truly carbon bike

    I think Noshortcuts is using a carbon fiber seatpost. Looks like a Raceface Next SL.

    The only thing he needs to do is secure that front brake line hose.

    Speaking of brakes, I'm thinking of going with a pair of Formula Oro Puro's or some Hope Mini Pro's to lighten my bike... and raise the carbon content.

    Can't speak to the Formulas but the Minis seem short on power. I have them on another bike and no matter what I do (new pads, new rotors, braided steel lines, incessant bleeding etc) I can't get them to brake as powerfully as my Juicy Ults.

    The Minis are super sexy but they just don't stop like I wish they would. Just so you know.

    photo spam!

    Be careful of what you ask for. Some photo passion can just lead to wishing you had more time to travel or to move cities!

    Thanks for the info.

    I just ordered a pair of Oro Puro's. I was using XT 4-pots which were good but I keep on having to remove my rear caliper and clean/relube one of the pistons because it kept on seizing up. I was doing this every 3 to 4 rides so it was becoming a pain.

    Cool-blue Rhythm Guinness Foam is the way to go!

    There seems to be a lack of Guinness Foam frames in the pics here, so I'll do what I can to celebrate the beauty of this beast.... ride pics to come tomorrow.

    This is a pretty straight-forward SX spec, with the only exceptions being the Talus fork upgrade, Juicy 5's over the Hayes, SRAM X.0 rear derailleur (buttery smooth, I'm now a convert), and a Specialized Rival SL Saddle.

    Without question, the best feeling ride I've ever had the pleasure of pedalling.

    OK a couple more....

    Had a *great* maiden voyage with the Mojo yesterday.....

    Wilder Ranch, Santa Cruz, CA. About 78 degrees, a slight breeze to take the edge off, and not a cloud in the sky...

    Redwoods, meadows, vistas, singletrack, and a ride along the ocean for the last few miles, Wilder is definitely a special place.

    Thanks for the pics - love the idea of a ride like that! Rewoods... Is Wilder Ranch a park? Open to the public?

    Very nice, and what a great way to start with your new beauty!

    This Bike Rocks!!!

    Anyone who owns a mojo knows what I'm talking about when I say this bike rocks. For those who are thinking about getting a mojo I say go for it. I've only had my bike for a couple of weeks and man all I want to do is ride it. This bike rides so effortlessly, it seems to float. I'm finding that I can use higher gears on most of our local trails. As far as climbing I cleaned two climbs first time out that I have only made once before in the last 3 years. What you are looking at is a full XTR large mojo with an upgrade to a 2008 talas fork. I came home from a awesome ride last night with my bike covered in mud and my wife said that I had better take some pictures of it to offset the "pretty boy" pictures I'm posting here. She was joking of coarse and when she gets her blue mojo she will see why you just want to keep this baby so clean.

    G-box, thanks for posting those. By any chance did you save a GPS track of your trip? It would be cool if we could load it into USAPhotomaps to check out the route. I'd like to ride it someday.

    Nice looking bike!

    Straw,

    Nice to finally see your Mojo. I noticed you still have the CC sticker on your bike. That was the first thing to come off on my bike.

    BTW, Is that a picture of your backyard?

    heh - keeping the mojo clean is a very surprising change for me. My prior bikes got dirty naturally and then got cleaned when it rained while I was driving.

    My mojo I clean regularly - almost to spit and polish level. I am not a person who keeps things clean generally (you know the type), but the mojo is changing my habits in that one area.

    What you are seeing is part of a 70'x35' garden in my back yard. What you don't see is the 70'x20' greenhouse and the 3 hr to mow lawn. Not to mention our house. This place is unique because behind us there is a magnificent mountain cliff with a face that towers over 1000' tall. It also has a sweet single track along the top of it but thats another story. I'm now looking a buying a digital camera and when I ride the cliff I'll take and post some pictures.

    P.S. ZZEAN, I know what you mean about hardly ever washing things but doesn't this bike just make you want to wash it. I mean those curves...... my wife sais that if I start to sleep with it we are definately going to counselling.

    I've got a sweet place in the north okanagan valley in B.C The weather is perfect, not as hot and dry as the south okanagan but we still have plenty of lakes and rivers and places to ride. The cliffs I'm talking about are absolutly beautiful and we quite often see the sun set on them . We are the second to last acreage before the mountain with the cliffs and just recently the whole cliff area was designated a park so it cannot be changed. Life is good!!

    Very remote trail called simply "Trail 1188", just outside Steamboat Springs, CO. Extremely narrow singletrack with great uphill and miles of aspen forest and lush flower meadows. Put your IPOD on and enjoy the zone......

    G-Box,

    Those are great pictures and looks to be an awesome ride. I'll have to bring, the bike, the board and the sticks and head down your way for a vacation. It seems like Santa Cruz is happening. Great Guiness by the way.

    Hi Mike,

    I've been out a few times on the bike now and in different conditions i.e. wet, muddy, dry and dusty and have come to the following conclusions:

    1) Nice lightweight and the tyres roll beautifully, very quiet on asphalt sections etc.

    2) The rear has never broke traction up hill in light mud, gravel or hard pack conditions which really surprised and impressed me.

    However...

    3) On the front it's a different story, bit sketchy in the corners and although it's fairly predictable and you can adapt your style to compensate it's probably worth going for something more aggressive upfront. I was considering a Schwalbe Nobby Nic or similar.

    I'll probably change once the weather changes as I'll need mud tyres for the English winter.

    Cheers,

    Serkan

    Cheers - it's a WTB Devo in limited edition red, they also do a white version which is uber cool and of course black too. Weight wise it's 185g, Titanium railed with some carbon used in the underside.

    It's not the most comfortable over long distances however for racing it's fine.

    I've actually changed a few parts this weekend, so here's an updated picture, fresh from the race course.

    Spec Change over original pictures including:

    M970 XTR Chainset
    M970 XTR Cassette
    KMC Superlight SL Chain (Silver)
    Ritchey Carbon Rizers
    SRP Titanium Wheel Skewers

    Oh...forgot to mention that I seriously love this bike. It rode like a dream today on a demanding XC course. Seriously flatters.

    Heres a latest picture:

    my nuclear green ibis mojo. most probably the first green mojo here in the philippines! most guys here went with the nude carbon, from what i know of at least 7 nude carbons have been sold here. ibis has just been recently brought in our country, starting august 2007 only. anyway, enjoy!









    most parts came from my old bike. set it up as a very comfy and yet still very efficient (even with the propedal off!) green and mean road machine. this will still see some eventual upgrades. but i'm already loving it! bike as shown is a decent 27.0 lbs.

    i would. but not yet. got the bike just 2 days ago. 95% of the rides i do are just inside our village, for exercise, hence the road tires. villages/subdivisions here have lots of speed bumps and the roads aren't the smoothest. using an efficient and plush full suspension bike makes the ride more enjoyable for me. i could swap out knobbies on my wheels if i wanted to, but i'd do that if and when i have a ride for that outdoor 5%.

    Nice bike!

    I use my Mojo for training and some commuting as well.

    Of course that'll change once I grab an Ibis Silk SL.

    That green Ibis looks nice - but I can't help feeling that it will be like a caged animal waiting to be let free those road tires.

    Find the rough stuff and take it out there regularly! You mojo will love you for it.

    My new ride... Before and after pics of my first race

    Had the bike for a month and a half now. But I have been ill and with all the traveling I have been doing I have not had any chance of riding it...

    This weekend I decided to do a race and found the Mojo as the perfect bike... climbs...descends, and carves single track very well... my new all in one bike.

    Soon. Vewy vewy soon...

    A sweet pesto frame patiently sits in a stand,
    awaiting choice bits as they come slowly to hand.
    Bling wheels, slick gears and very fine brakes,
    then light bars, post and stem, then some fancy light cranks.
    Protective wrap is a must before this build can start,
    then look out sweet trails as I rip you apart.

    I'll be riding soon in WTF territory

    the rennovations can wait.

    Essentially each is the same bike, a Mojo. Bring them on.

    Too many clean bikes in here. Got to get out and ride the thing.

    Built from the frame up. Around 25# depending on tires.

    aww man, watching you guys mojo makes me wonder when will I EVER be able to own a Mojo.

    B_Aero, sweet bike mate, how light is it compared with the other 2 bikes in the photo?

    Nice shock mud guards there djaka. And how is the suspension linkage holding up with all that mud?

    Hey fellas... just got my bike back from the shop

    The build is as follows
    Medium pesto
    07 xtr cranks
    07 xtr pedals
    07 xtr wheelset
    07 xtr rotors
    07 xtr cluster
    07 xtr dual control gears/brakes
    Columbus XLR8R carbon seatpost
    Salsa Pro Moto carbon bar
    FSA stem which came with the bike (may swap to Tomson X2/X4 stem)
    Rubber - Ranchero exception/stans goo
    Saddle - avatar (off my other bike)

    She feels light and she looks willing :0)

    I've covered the frame with bodyguard auto film (had some fun creating the vinyl cutter templates for the downtube and rear triangle but it's all sorted now.) It's handy to work in a graphics/signage company!

    The bike gets christened on the sweet fabled trails of Sparrow Hill tonight!!!
    Ride report to follow...

    The light in the pic is the fantastically bright Photon Max LED from Niteflux, which is way brighter than my Vicious HID!
    You can never have too much light.

    It's not easy being green!

    What did you use for the chain guard and on the underside of the seat stay? You may be getting requests for frame protection, nice work.

    Hi Oiz, the chain guards I made up from strip foam rubber (4mm thick x 27mm wide) that I got from a chain store here in Australia called CLARK RUBBER. If these guys carry it, then it should be available anywhere. It's a medium density (not too hard or too spongy).

    I stuck it down using a 3M (or TESA) double sided tape 25mm wide that is quite commonly used by us in the large format display graphics industry. It's a high grade tape that sticks like sh(i)t to a blanket, and so far seems to be hanging on the frame quite well. I expect this will cut down chain clatter quite a bit. I bought 1m and cut it to the shapes I needed.

    You might be right on the requests front, as a few of the local mojo fellas have already sent me email saying they'd like to get some to protect their favourite plaything

    Tonight I'll christen the mojo on some sweet trails and then perhaps commemorate the occasion with a well earned Kowalski's Trail Lubricant

    3 hours to go...

    Yes I've got a pair of Revs at 130mm and the bike feels great, very balanced. Apologies for the lack of picture, it doesn't seem to want to link.

    Hi, for the fellow aussies...where did you source the 3m double sided tape or even the 'normal' tape? I am about to get my Mojo and have a meter of 3m clear tape for the bike shop but would be useful to know. Where do you hail from? I'm in Adelaide. Enjoy your first ride, bike looks stunning!

    The protective tape comes from a company called Spandex (a sign writer's supplies store). The double sided tape I used is TESA brand tape I am not sure where we buy it so will check today. The bodyguard film is Avery brand and is available in a number of widths - some of which have a minimum order of 5m lengths.

    I've now got a few enquiries from riders who want to buy a sticker kit for their bike, so this might be practical for you too. I will put an order together to make it more economical for all.

    We don't get much rain down here, let alone find any mud to play in, but they performed adequately enough while they were on my other bike riding in the Brindabellas in winter - and it was hellish muddy then. It depends on the mud though, as not much really works on very clay mud.

    I recommend frozen chocolate-coated bananas from the Big Banana Plantation shop in Coffs Harbour - they're just the ticket on a hot Summer day

    My crankbrother sl pedal perform very well in these condition even when it is completely covered with that sticky red mud.
